I wish I could give you a report along the same successful results as Alan at Chew.
Sad

Afraid not, it is still rock hard at Farmoor and to prove the point I was the only boat out and the bank fishers gave up late morning.
I tried all the obvious line formats and lures with out a touch from a trout.
The fish finder was keeping me company and it was showing a mass of bait fish shoals ( my guess perch), I did try to sneak a big perch but that did not work either.

The issue is the water temperature is still high at around 20, Mark the Warden summed it up.
A concrete bowl, clay bottom and warmish Thames water coming into the reservoir maintaining the warm water, Farmoor takes a long time to warm up after winter and will no doubt take more time to cool down after the heat wave.
I am off to Cornwall on Sunday so fingers crossed it may have cooled down on my return.

Sorry to hear Farmoor is still out of sorts but it will pass. I'm already looking forward to our now annual winter back drifting trips for bars of silver that refuse to give up! Cool
